Hi I'm Mitzie.

I grew up in TN, but have lived all over the northeastern and southeastern United States, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi. My name is Mitzie and I'm a mother, wife, military spouse, cook, baker, full-time employee, and I'm a Mormon. I graduated as non-traditional student with my B.S. degree in 2009, which happens to be the same year my daughter also graduated from college. I currently work for the university I graduated from and lead a very busy professional life. I love to go horseback riding and I love reading good books even more. The only thing that I could possibly enjoy more than reading is traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a convert into the faith, but with all the great role models I have in my life, those who led me down the path to the LDS church, how could I not have converted? The Book of Mormon just makes sense. It fills in many of the gaps and answers so many of the questions I've always had before - questions no one else could answer. Why do I attempt to follow the gospel? I do it because even though I know I am not perfect, I know He and His gospel are.

How I live my faith

I enjoy doing volunteer work, whether it is for the church or for my community. I am just learning about visiting teaching, but I already have a calling as secretary for my ladies' study group. This year, I will help organize our Christmas Nativity Program too. Service to others is a huge part of the LDS church and it is something that will make a person feel amazing afterwards.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

A Sunday morning Mormon church service consists of a Sacrament Meeting. During this time, we may sing a few hymns, hear two or three speakers, and we also have communion, which is what we call sacrament. After that, we each go to our age appropriate Sunday School Classes and meet for a while and discuss our current studies. Then, to close out our Sunday morning, women over the age of 18 will go to a Relief Society meeting, while men over the age of 18 go to a Priesthood meeting. Show more Show less
